holds sway over the house. this is the "cbs morning news" for wednesday, november 7th, 2012. good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. barack obama has been reelected president of the united states. mr. obama won a second term in office defeating mitt romney following an often nasty and costly election. democrats have retained control of the senate, republicans continue to control the house. president obama won a decisive victory over mitt romney racking up wins in at least 7 of 9 battleground states. the president won in wisconsin and iowa's six electoral votes, a state that launched his first campaign and the key western state of nevada. but it was ohio that pushed the president over the 270 electoral votes needed to win. it was a commanding win for the president in the electoral college, but the popular vote was neck and neck. in his victory speech, mr. obama promised better days ahead. >> while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the united states of america, the best i

get a little perspective from our cbs news election consultant, frank luntz who is a pollster for the republican party. frank, this would have been a layup under other circumstances, we've said it before tonight. no president with unemployment rate this high has ever been re-elected since fdr. i wonder what are republicans thinking of where they are tonight? >> well the strange thing that as bad as this was for the presidential campaign it's been access amongst house races where republicans are holding their own. end up with a net gain which nobody was expecting. in the end, mitt romney was able to prove that he was a problem solver but he was unable to prove that he understood their problems. with the republican needs to pay attention to what i call the empathy quotient. ability to understand, appreciate and communicate that they really get what the average american is thinking and feeling and then they can prove that they can solve those problems. >> pelley: what demographics in the country based on what we know at this point if the republicans nail to reach. who do they need to
